    We interviewed 3 contractors about replacing our 24 y/o roof on our 3,000 sq. ft. home, which had experienced leaking into our family room during the recent storms. Selection of the contractor was difficult because all made impressive presentations and were within the same range of costs. We selected Omega Design, Inc.

    Men worked fast and furious. Imagine removing a "double roof" on a 1800 sq ft house and reroofing all within two days. The only negative is that the roof is not the color of the swatch (although appears in a part of a shingle, but does not show on the roof). It meant I had to change the color of the trim and house. A disappointment for the last "roof" of my life. If someone had told me...

    We had two windows that started to leak during the last heavy rain. I called them, and they came and gave me a quote, and since I had replaced the balance of the windows in my home, just a few years ago, I sort of knew the cost. It was fair, and I was worried about their being some damage to the walls, etc., but they did an inspection, ordered the new windows, and I had them installed less...

California Solar Panel Installation

More solar panels have been installed in California than any other state in the country. In fact , according to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), more than 4.8 Million CA homes already have solar panels installed and that number is only going to go up in the coming years. Furthermore, considering that solar energy prices have decreased more than 60% in the last five years, it make sense why more California homeowners are moving from traditional electricity to solar panels for the home.

California Solar Energy Return On Investment (ROI)

The average cost to install solar panels in California is approximately $21,000. While that number is expected to go down (considering solar takes up only 14% of the state’s electricity), sadly, solar panel jobs in California cost a bit more than the national average. New solar panel projects, across the country, start at $17,000.

Nonetheless, unlike other states or cities that don’t see as much as sun as California, Golden State homeowners save quite a bit of money when they install solar panels. In fact, California homeowners can save nearly $11,000 over 20 years after hiring a solar panel company. In fact, solar panel installers say the panels can cut monthly electric bills by 50% to 90%.

As you can see, researching solar panel companies in California is not only the right decision now, but it’s a smart decision for years to come.

California Solar Energy Financing & Rebates

Unlike a small plumbing job, $21,000 is a steep price for something you can’t visualize day in and day out. Fortunately, there are plenty of rebates and tax incentives the Golden State offers, both on the state and city level. Furthermore, there are various financing options all California homeowners can take advantage of, if you need.

Tax Incentives & Other Rebates for California Homeowners

  • Federal Tax Credits for Solar Energy Systems: 30% of the total cost. This credit is good through Dec. 31, 2019.
  • Sell Extra Energy: Electric companies in California will actually pay you for that excess energy.
  • California Solar Initiative (CSI) Rebates: The CSI Program pays solar consumers an incentive based on system performance. You can choose a lump-sum payment or monthly payments. The Expected Performance-Based Buydown (EPBB) is the upfront incentive available only for smaller systems. See more at Go Solar California.
  • California Property Tax Exclusion for Solar Energy Systems: The solar energy equipment does not add value to your home and therefore, should not be included on your tax bill.

Believe it or not, there are plenty of other CA tax incentives for all new solar panels. See if you quality for additional rebates at energy.gov.

Financing Options

  • Energy-Efficient Mortgages (EEMs): Credits a home's energy efficiency in the mortgage itself. A home energy rater conducts a home energy rating before financing is approved. This rating verifies that your home is energy efficient.
  • Refinance Mortgage: Essentially, raising your mortgage the amount you owe for the solar panel installation.
  • Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC): Loans in stages. Good if making big payments to California contractor in stages. HELOC’s carry adjustable interest rates.
  • Home Equity Loan: Just like a normal mortgage, but for a renovation. They contain fixed interest rates.
  • Personal Loan or Line of Credit: Good for smaller solar energy projects. Personal loans carry high interest rates.
  • FHA 203(K) Mortgage: Refinance and create a new loan at the same time. Loan is based on estimated value after the renovation.

California Solar Panel Licensing

It may not be required in all states, but any contractor installing solar panels in California needs to obtain a few solar licenses:

  1. California Solar Contractors’ License: C-46 or C-10 OR
  2. A/B General Building Contractors’ License: Plus education requirements

As such, no matter what solar energy project you’re considering, make sure your solar panel installer has one of the licenses mentioned above.
